The YMS Teacher Training for 2019 is closed for registration, see the “workshops and
events” page for information on attending modular weekends throughout the winter and
The YMS Liberation Through Movement Training Intensive uses yoga as a foundation to expose students to a variety of styles of movement and approaches to learning, practice and teaching. Built into the training are two underlying intentions, the first is to understand the process by which movement is transmitted from teacher to student and the second is to develop a personal practice that is intelligent, multi-disciplinary and integral to the work of living and sharing yoga, movement and an overall healthy life. Much of our time will be spent going over pragmatic approaches for communicating within a student teacher relationship. The methodologies covered will range from traditional yoga to martial arts, dance, acrobatics, circus arts, therapeutic body work and outdoor natural movement. Students will be asked to push themselves physically and mentally as well as to reflect upon and study their own experiences with the material; observing what techniques work well, which don’t, and developing a personal understanding for the process of learning. As these approaches are taught there will also be opportunities to record the similarities in modalities, the underlying connections and space in order to begin the creative process of crafting a multidisciplinary personal practice. Students will be exposed to teachers with years of experience who can help guide them through the challenges and joys of that process. By the end of the training students can expect to have the foundation of a multidisciplinary yoga teacher and a clear path of how to grow personally and professionally through practice and education.
